Use less water this winter to save on future bills
Wastewater averaging is how the City determines how much you will be charged for wastewater for the next year. Since there are no meters on the wastewater lines leaving your property, the City averages your water use from November through February to determine what your home or business will be billed.

Operation Front Porch returns for 2022 holidays
Let the police be your front porch this holiday season to avoid package theft. Ensure secure delivery of your packages by shipping them to the Round Rock Police Department. You can then pick them up from the Police Department and have one less thing to worry about. Packages will be accepted from Nov. 7 through Dec. 21.
